IMG_2644The site of a seventh-century monastery founded by St Colman Mac Duagh, there is a great collection of ancient churches here, along with a fine round tower. The cathedral has a blocked-up trabeate doorway (possibly eleventh-century) in the west wall, and in the adjoining field are the ruins of the twelfth century St John’s Church. Further north again is the thirteenth century ‘Glebe House’, possibly the abbott’s house
